Publicity CommtMioa West Newton Sees Pioneer Days Re-Lived as Caravan Of Settlers Camps There s WEST NEWTON, Jan. 28.--West Newton will relive the early days of its history for the next 10 weeks. For, the modern caravan of "settlers" dressed in buckskins who under the sponsorship of the government, are commemorating the first settlement of the Northwest Territory by tramping over the route the pioneers traveled 150 years ago, have arrived in this -little town on the banks of the Youghiogheny River. The "pioneers" have been quartered temporarily in a large house in the town, and have begun construction of a log cabin just as did the men who straggled into the site of the present town a century and a half ago. They will use no modern equipment in building the cabin-just the implements ithat would have been available in pioneer days. The materials will be obtained from nearby woods. During their sojourn in the town the "pioneers" will present seven or eight pageants. They will also build flat boats and canoes and, like the men whose- deeds they are commemorating, travel down stream to the present town o£ Marietta, Ohio, with the flood waters of early spring. The caravan has already visited 50 towns since leaving Massachusetts in December. FRED HILL IN HONORARY FRAT Frederick Hill, a junior at Penn State College, was initiated into the National Honorary Mathematics Fraternity for exceptional grades in mathematics and high all college grades. He is a' son of Mr. and Mrs John Hill of East Crawford avenue. Highest Lighthouse Brighter. HOBART, Australia, Jan. 28.--The Deal lighthouse (Tasmania), which is 957 feet above the sea and ranks as the highest lighthouse in the world is to be stepped up from a 3,000- candlcpower acetylene light to. one of a million light candlcpowcr electric DAY IN WASHINGTON BY DAVID LAWRENCE Continued from Page Four, money out of surpluses." This sort of contradictory .advice only adds to the confusion ot those who are trying to operate the profit system--though Mr. Roosevelt would lave been more accurate if he hod termed it the "profit and loss system." It is easy enough to tell business men who have the responsibility of meeting payrolls what to do, but it is something else to teach them how to do it without getting into receivership or bankrupcy. Everybody in government seemingly is giving advice to business, but nobody apparently wants to listen to the advice the business men offer. . One reason is that the .Government, through the political-minded and the demagogues, has done its utmost for five years to discredit business. The loft-wingers hhvc deliberately fostered the idea so that socialism may be introduced, the middle-of-the- roadcrs have done it because they thought it was the way to maintain political power. Meanwhile, if wages arc not cut so that work can be spread, millions more will have no jobs at all. Had Mr. Roosevelt urged that work be spread and pay cuts distributed-so as to take care of many who would otherwise be deprived of their entire jobs, the reasoning would have been more acceptable to the business world, though today, with contractual obligations to pay certain hourly rates of wages, the usual answer is to cut down the amount of work, introduce luy-ofTs for the unlucky workmen who have been last to come on the payroll and who have suffered through the depression,while others have had some form of employment. Maybe these unemployed will use their power next autumn to put into office congressmen and senators who will remove tho shackles from business nnd give tho American economic system a chance to function once more.

Two members o£ the board, Dr. Clyde S. Campbell nnd Worth K. Bnlslcy, sent regrets over Inability to attend. Dr. Myers congratulated the teachers of Pennsylvania on the enactment of the .tenure law. It is far from perfect, he said, but serves a good purpose in that it provides protection to teachers against political, racial and religious prejudices, while it also imposes serious obligations on the teachers, to render better service and to' "tench more courageously,' with the assurance they cannot be removed at the whim or displeasure of 'some prominent" He phophesizcd there will be'changes in the act.and suggested the State Education Associatipn will be the agency to propose them. Dr. William's talksd along biological lines emphasizing that he termed a tendency in nature to eliminate the male. This, he said, is especially noticeable in the insect world.
